The photograph shows my mother Valerie Neumannova, nee Tausig. It was taken at the Steiner photo studio in Jihlava in the 1930s.
My mother's native tongue was German. She went to high school in Jihlava. Mother was as a modern woman who dressed very well; she had her dresses custom-tailored. She never wore make-up. She didn't need it, as she was very pretty. She had black hair and hazel eyes.
She became a housewife after her marriage. My mother went to a cafe once a week to meet with her girlfriends. Once or twice a week some friend of hers would come visit or mother would go visit someone when my father went to various meetings.
